While it might've taken a while initially to get the 400 series from NVIDIA, it's safe to say that over the last few months it's full steam ahead as we see more models from the company and even more variations from its partners.
The GTX 460 is a phenomenon; it's so much faster than it should be considering the cost and partners have just gone crazy with the model, offering all kind of variations including MSI who recently went all out with the HAWK version that offered us some insane overclocking potential.
As awesome as the GTX 460 is when it comes to value and performance, the bottom line remains that some people don't want to, or can't afford to spend in excess of $220 US for a video card. If you're looking for something around the $120 - $150 US mark the weapons of choice are the HD 5770 / HD 5750. The question we're going to answer today, though, is whether or not these cards are still the weapon of choice?
Checking out the package, it's all very bare with not a whole lot going on. Inside we've only got a driver CD, Molex to 6-PIN PCI-E connector and some paperwork outside of the actual video card.
